These appetizers are quick, easy, and best of all, delicious. They are ideal for a New Year's Eve spread.


  • 1 lb. crab meat–the easiest is cans of lump crab meat, medium priced is fine; if you buy it from the seafood counter, get already cooked crab and chop it finely
  • 1/4 Cup onion, finely minced (1/2 a small onion)
  • 1/4 Cup celery, finely minced (a small stalk)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2-3/4 Cup bread crumbs
  • 1 TB. CHESAPEAKE BAY SEASONING
  • 1/2 tsp. REGULAR MUSTARD POWDER
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-2 TB. butter
       

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Start with 1/2 Cup bread crumbs. You may have to add more, but add only enough to hold the patties together. Using 1 TB. of the mixture, form into balls and then flatten into patties. Heat 1 TB. butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. When it is hot, fry the patties until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes per side. Be careful not to have the temperature too high, since you want the patties golden, not dark brown. We fried the patties in two batches. If you need more butter for the second batch, add another TB. Remove from the frying pan and serve while warm with Seafood Dipping Sauce.

Seafood Dipping Sauce
this dipping sauce is perfect for Shrimp Cocktail too.

1 TB. HORSERADISH POWDER
1 TB. water
1 Cup ketchup
1 TB. prepared yellow mustard

Combine the HORSERADISH POWDER with the water and let sit for about 5 minutes. Add the ketchup and mustard. Whisk to combine. Prepare this ahead of time if possible, as the horseradish flavor gets stronger with time.

Prep. time: 5 minutes
Frying time: 8-10 minutes per batch
Yield: about 24 patties
